    That's very close to what I thought at the time. Drop the O and H and replace with......well I let you play countdown with that one. " A consonant please Rachel. And another "

    Ok guys, no need for comments that might be hurtful (apart from headwounds) all types can read the thread and tensions are high all round.

    Tensions shouldn't be high. The thread was started because of SueJB's thread asking the question, 'Why so few ?' with a lot of valuable input regarding how member's feel and cope with type 1. After I posted my post about 'Why so few' type 1's post, I decided to start this thread. I have changed the title now because of a stark resemblance from a type 2 thread. There shouldn't be any tension, or are we not allowed to post threads regarding type 1, that's what it feels like ?
    Feeling :(

    Robin - For clarity, the tension is largely related to the sentiments of some of the posts.

    I would ask all contributors consider carefully their post content and tone.

    I've got to ask, having read the similar post in the t2 section if you'll be posting the same post there?

    Just to clarify to whoever reads this, whatever type you are, this thread was started because of a previous thread called 'why so few' to help type 1's share, compare and support each other needs managing type 1, some of us of had it for decades and it's a hard slog at times. I cannot believe what is going on........ :(

    Hi Everyone.

    This thread (and two others) were all set up with the intention of people finding comfortable, chatty groups for daily interaction. Places where they can feel at home without worrying about treading on toes.

    This won't work if people are just using these threads to vent their resentments and make veiled (or less than veiled) criticisms about other members.

    So, if people want these threads to flourish and provide community and friendly chat, then the moderation team is asking everyone to respect the spirit in which they threads were created.

    The Forum Rules and Ethos are clear - this is not the place to air disagreements.

    Regards,
    The whole moderation team
